Jack Del Rio confirms Jones-Drew didn't have surgery

We mentioned Friday evening that Maurice Jones-Drew’s agent debunked a report from NFP that claimed Jones-Drew underwent knee surgery.  (Perhaps our former colleague Aaron Wilson was simply conducting a social experiment.)

On Monday, Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio double-debunked it.

“No,” Del Rio said. “No, has not happened, is not necessary. He’s working,
rehabbing, strengthening and gearing up for the regular season.”

Jones-Drew will sit out a second straight game of preseason action to rest his sore knee.  He’s also expected to sit out practice with a lateral meniscus injury.
